The Victoria Police Department in Texas is under fire after one of its officers reportedly used a Taser against a 76-year-old man who was stopped for a vehicle inspection issue over his license plate.

However, there was no need for the man to be stopped in the first place.

The incident began when Victoria officer Nathanial Robinson, 23, pulled over Pete Vasquez for driving with an expired inspection sticker. Vasquez, who is a mechanic, was driving a vehicle that belonged to a car dealership. The elderly man tried to explain to Robinson that dealer plates are exempt from an inspection.

In video footage captured by Robinson’s dashcam, Vasquez can be seen exiting his car and pointing towards his license plate.

Unconvinced by Vasquez’s explanation, though, Robinson is then seen grabbing the man’s arm and seemingly tries to make an arrest. Vasquez tries to pull his arm away, but Robinson becomes more forceful, pushing the man to the hood of the police vehicle and taking him to the ground.

Although the two are then out of the camera’s view, Robinson used a Taser against Vasquez two times, police confirmed to the Victoria Advocate. The next time Robinson is seen in the dashcam footage, he is holding the stun gun.

“He just acted like a pit bull, and that was it,” Vasquez said to the newspaper. “For a while, I thought he was going to pull his gun and shoot me.”

Once more officers arrive at the scene, Vasquez is heard talking to a sergeant, who asks what happened.

“He grabbed me and threw me on the pavement there. I almost knocked my head on that damn pole,”Vasquez said. “And then he started Tasing me.”

Since the incident occurred, Robinson has been placed on administrative duty, AP reported. An investigation is also underway. Police also confirmed that Vasquez’s car was exempt from inspection.
